Color Blocking and Honoring Kim

Another post for today as I am trying to catch up on some things on Splitcoaststampers. I wanted to honor Kim Hahn aka Luv Flowers as Featured Stamper a couple weeks ago. I cased this card of hers.
The card also fit a couple of CAS challenges. One is a photo called Summer Gold which is a White Mountain Puzzle...I did the colors, not the scene. The other is a sketch and is using color blocking.
I blocked my colors by just placing a Spellbinders classic scallop nestabilitie on the image in different areas and sponging inside.

I'm using a Mark's Finest Papers, A Heinrich Company stamp set called Love Remains. The paper is also from Mark's Finest Papers and is Flecked Dirt and Premium Heavy White.

I'm also joining challenge #22 at For Your Inspiration and am inspired by the colors in this gorgeous photo, although I must say my colors are nearly as vivid.


I also want to enter the Simon Says Stamp Challenge-Anything Goes
Ink Used: Memento Rich Cocoa, Dandelion, Desert Sand, and New Sprout

Love the way you did the color blocking, Benzi! Thanks for sharing the idea of using Nesties -- I've not done that before, but I will now. Great card. Love all the white on the black CS base. Fab rose stamp!

Clever way to get a color blocked effect! I thought it must've been a stamp for sure.
